How about strike-through'ing the user names and some help icon next to it?

Any suggestions on how to display negative ACLs?

If an identifier is prefixed with a "-", then it is a negative ACL.   
From RFC 2086:

"When an identifier in an ACL starts with a dash ("-"), that indicates 
that associated rights are to be removed from the identifier that is 
prefixed by the dash.  For example, if the identifier "-fred" is 
granted the "w" right, that indicates that the "w" right is to be 
removed from users matching the identifier "fred".  Implementations 
need not support having identifiers which start with a dash in ACLs."

IMP currently displays the identifier with a leading "-", but it 
should make it clear that this is a negative ACL and remove the "-" 
for display purposes.  We will also need to add some online help so 
people know what negative ACLs are.
